Sturgis Funeral Home will have tour on Oct 24

Pictures of Mr. Floyd at the Sturgis Funeral Home . The document is the Autopsy of Mr. Floyd. The Autopsy makes for a very interesting read. Just click on it and it will enlarge so you can see it.

October 22 is the 75th anniversary of the Death of Pretty Boy Floyd. My team and I have something planned for it thought it is a private affair. I was reading in the Review from East Liverpool and The Sturgis House also has something in the works. Saturday, October 24, from 3 to 7 they are having an open house and will give a free tour of the museum area and the area that was the embalming area as well as Floyd's death mask, death certificate, FBI fingerprints, and embalming equipment. Glendon Floyd, nephew of Mr. Floyd will also be there. Free hand fans with Mr. Floyd's Picture on it will be available as well as apple scented Candles that will be on sale for $2. Flash photography will be allowed during the tour.
Hopefully you will see me there. We also plan on going to the Spread Eagle Tavern that day for their haunted tour. More to come about that.

A Ghost Walk At Gretchen's Lock

We had a great time tonight at Gretchen's Lock. I didn't even count how many people actually came. Even after the walk started, some extra people came. I met some really nice people.

There were a lot of cold fingers and toes when we were done, like 4plus hours later. We did a few EVP's, though with so many people it was hard to hear. The EVP in the are did not disappoint. Even Esther Hale might have said a thing or two tonight, for the first time ever in my presence.

Sarah, Sammi, Jon, Amber, and Brooke, Amber's sister, came along to give a hand. Gosh, what would I do without them?

We visited Gretchen's Lock, the abandoned equipment, the rest rooms, the sight of the old house, Jake's Lock, Hannah's tree, the Grist Mill and of course, some stories about the bridge rounded out our evening.

I haven't had time yet for any detailed inspection of the pics. They are looking good though.

Yes, it snowed. Yes it rained, but that didn't keep all these great people away. Thank you all for coming.

Expect more to come tomorrow about this evenings events. There were even a few people brave enough to tough out 5 minutes in the Mill. Good Night!
